As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

18 days into a sale of a flat in Bourne End. Conveyancing is fine but we have been asked to pay an extortionate amount from the managing agents. So far we have forked out £225 for a leasehold management pack and then another £117.20 for additional questions raised by the buyers lawyer.

Neither you or your property lawyer will have any control over the level of the charges for this information but the typical fee for the information for Bourne End leasehold property is £350. When it comes to Bourne End conveyancing deals it is customary for the owner to cover the costs. The landlord or their agents are not duty bound to address these questions although many will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices disproportionate to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no statute that mandates set charges for administrative tasks. Nor is there any statutory time frame by which they are required to provide the information.
